Troll Alert - The Enemy Within

02-10-2001 11:18

J18, Seattle, Gothenburg, Genoa . . . all great occasions when the anti-capitalist movement rose up in a spirit of international solidarity to resist police oppression. But now it seems that the days of direct action are numbered. All over Europe, the Trotskyist Bloc are calling the shots. Just who are the real police agents?

Autonomist view on the war & how the working class ended the Gulf & Kosovo wars

01-10-2001 23:51

Here are some interesting links. The first is George Caffentzis's autonomist Marxist speculation on the causes of the attacks in the USA.

The next two are articles on how army mutinies and working class uprisings ended both the Gulf and the Kosovo wars. The final articles are attempts to understand why the opposition to those wars was so much less impressive in the UK.

******** If you happen to be in London there is a NO WAR BUT THE CLASS WAR public meeting at 5pm, Sunday the 7th Oct @ The Exchange, Sebbon st, Islington, London (E-mail for details of future meetings) **********

Brighton - riot police arrests at start - film clip

01-10-2001 21:25

End of the outrageous early unprompted arrests in Brighton at the labour party conference demo when over 30 riot police steamed into the peaceful crowd waiting to march and started arresting wombles and others - part of a harder line after the US attacks? The police later said they were 'intelligence-led' arrests to prevent possible disorder.

Another soggy social democratic wank fest...

01-10-2001 15:43

To build an opposition to the impending war must break away from the control of the social democrats, dominated by the Socialist Workers Party, who remain too tied by the umblical cord to the racist, imperialist Labour Party to build an anti-capitalist opposition to the miserty unleashed around the globe, and at home, in our name!

WTO : 'Why' they intend to meet in Qatar.

01-10-2001 14:34

Reply to my question as to why the WTO is to be meeting in Qatar. Don't be fooled by this nonsense - the US and Britain want to force through a new round of free trade talks (to head off recession amongst other things, and to privatise, pollute more etc etc). The only places they can do this is where demonstrations are both prohibited and impossible to get to. Later this year people will be standing up against the WTO by blockading the worlds stock exchanges and targetting Qatar based companies and govt. offices. There is some info on the website below, and more on many others.
